Island institution Alpenland to close Deli will close doors on Saturday, April 20 By Megan Managan

Despite a collaborative effort between owners old and new, a gathering place and an important part of Island life will close.

Pool loses less money in 2012 than in 2011 MISD, City joint meeting covers pool, siting of new schools By Megan Managan

During the Mercer Island City Council and School Board joint meeting on Thursday, both groups got an update on Mary Wayte Pool. John Walker, with Olympic Cascade Aquatics (OCA), the company that runs the pool, presented the operations report for the 2012 Fiscal Year. “This is a good news report,” said Mercer Island School District Superintendent Gary Plano. “This is a community asset that so many people depend on.” Walker said the pool doors remain open, which is the No. 1 goal, and it is an extremely busy place. OCA took over pool operations on Jan. 1, 2011. During that time the pool has remained open and used by the high school swimming and water polo teams, offered classes and extended hours to over 100 per week to accommodate all of its offerings. “It’s a lot of chaos, but a lot

Water main breaks at Shorewood By Reporter Staff

A break in a water main at Mercer Island’s Shorewood Heights Apartments last Thursday evening affected many apartments across several buildings. According to a person who answered the phone at the Shorewood office who only gave his name as Tucker, the reason that the pipe broke was likely because of age. “It was not overloaded nor was there any construction near the break,” he said. According to resident Nicole Howard Radliff, several buildings were without water on and off for a couple of days. The water system at Shorewood is not owned or maintained by the City of Mercer Island. When the development was built, it negotiated its own arrangement with the City of Seattle Public Utilities for its water supply. City of Mercer Island maintenance people were contacted and offered their assistance. Shorewood hired a private contractor to repair the break. The break has been fixed.

That money would allow the pool to get the needed repairs and upgrades to the infrastructure, to continue to keep it open. During the meeting, the two groups also discussed the school district’s continued work toward building a new school. Several members of the board expressed interest in looking at what it would take to build a school near the old recycling center location next to Mercerdale Park. Though members of the City Council said the school board is welcome to study the site, the city is unwilling to give up any park space. Mercer Island City Manager Rich Conrad updated the members on the continued work to find new homes for Youth Theatre Northwest, should the school district decide to build a new school on the North Mercer campus. While no site has been officially identified, several places may be available for YTN to move. Conrad said the city will have more information about possibilities during the June retreat. Plano said he knows several of the other North Mercer tenants have also been actively looking for new places, but nothing official has been announced.

Study of state’s Death With Dignity law says it is not abused

Redmond police dog nabs suspect after vodka theft By Rebecca Mar

A police dog helped to catch a suspect on the run after midnight on Tuesday, April 9. After stealing three bottles of vodka and a protein shake from Albertsons, a 20-yearold Kent man eluded police officers for several blocks until a veteran police dog named Vader and his handler, Officer Sam Hovenden, arrived from the Redmond Police Department. Two officers assisted the K-9 unit in tracking the suspect where he had last been seen, in a wooded area above a fourfoot retaining wall on a steep incline between Island Crest Way and 80th Avenue S.E. A Mercer Island police officer had initially encountered the suspect as he was passing McDonalds in the 2800 block of 78th Avenue S.E., after police responded to a 911 hang-up call from Albertsons and the report of the theft, witnessed by a store employee. The officer ordered the suspect to take off his backpack and sit down on the sidewalk. The suspect complied, but as he set the backpack on the ground, he rolled away from the officer, stood up and fled eastbound

Last Wednesday, the New England Journal of Medicine published a study by the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance that looked at the medical group’s implementation of the state’s Death With Dignity Act. The conclusion might seem boring: “Overall, our Death With Dignity program has been well accepted by patients and clinics,” the study reads; except for the fact that what used to be called “assisted suicide” was an incredibly controversial issue when the state law passed by initiative in 2008. The study underscores one of the most notable features of Washington’s experience with Death With Dignity: Nobody talks about it all that much, at least outside of the circles of dying patients and those who care for them. There have been few media stories on people who have utilized the law. Little attention is paid to the statistical reports related to Death With Dignity that are posted each year by the Department of Health. This sharply contrasts with the experience of Oregon, which in 1997 became the first state to pass a Death With Dignity law, giving rise to count-

less articles, a documentary (“How to Die in Oregon”) and a U.S. Supreme Court case (ultimately upholding the law). “It’s a different cultural moment,” explains Anthony Back, a doctor at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and one of the authors of the paper published today. “Oregon did a huge paving of the way.” And what he says happened in that state is that the fears of Death With Dignity opponents didn’t materialize. The act didn’t become a “slippery slope,” encouraging suicide among people who were really at death’s door. Neither, he says, was it targeted at “a vulnerable population with no medical insurance.” Instead, Back observes, very small numbers of Oregonians took advantage of the law, and those who did tended to be educated, upper middle class and “very, very determined people who really want control.” The same has happened here. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance — a center uniting doctors from Fred Hutchinson, UW Medicine and Seattle Children’s — analyzed information about its 40 patients who took their own lives between March 2009 and December

2011. “Typically white, male and well-educated,” according to the study, they nearly universally said a prime motivation for them was not wanting to lose their autonomy. The study also went into a variety of ways that the alliance has attempted to make doctors and staffers comfortable with the organization’s implementation of the law. The alliance doesn’t compel anyone’s participation or post information about Death With Dignity in public spaces. It also requires patients to sign an agreement that they will not take their own lives in a public way. Back says this approach has worked, illustrating that “there are ways that an institution can handle” this type of law, even when a number of staffers, as at the alliance, question “in their heart of hearts” whether it’s the right thing to do. One of the reasons for the study, according to a press release put out by the alliance, is that several other states are now considering Death With Dignity laws. And while Death With Dignity has become something of a non-issue here, that is not necessarily the case elsewhere. In Montana today, the state Senate moved to have a floor vote on a bill that would imprison doctors for up to 10 years if they help a patient die.

Talk is not enough


he Washington Newspaper Publisher Association held its annual “Press Day” at the Washington state Legislature last week. The event is an opportunity for newspaper people to hear directly from sitting legislators, both Republican and Democrat, who come to speak informally and answer questions with newspaper people in the very midst of discussions on the House or Senate floor. This year, members of the press heard about everything from problems with designing and funding the Interstate 5 Columbia River Crossing bridge to the difficulties finding common ground on changes to public disclosure laws. What was evident was the expression of equal parts passion and frustration from the lawmakers. They are keenly aware of their status with citizens who blame bipartisan bickering for inaction and gridlock. While lawmakers try their damndest to move forward with key bills that they hope will move people and goods, create jobs and educate children, they must also deal with the baggage of past policies and mistakes. An example is the huge overhead of pensions, cost overruns, mistakes and unfunded mandates, increasing social services costs, etc. Moving forward means a lot of looking back. ercer Island is set to lose yet another Island touchstone, Alpenland. After barely a year, its new owners have decided to let it go. There will be loud protests and expressions of sadness and regret tinged with shock. These words suggest that the restaurant and cafe is always busy, full of patrons. It is tough to run a small business. Competition for diners is fierce. There are more choices not only for dining in but for takeout. Not only are there pizza places, yogurt shops, bagels and more, groceries stores have larger deli departments. The cost of running a business is not necessarily related to its size, particularly for those who might import goods. There are labor costs, taxes and new regulations. It requires those resources and more. Time. Island institution or not, if you asked an Island small business owner what they really need to succeed, it is not admiration, but shoppers and diners.

funding for the state of Washington would be 20 percent less than in previous years. Yes, the WSDOT budget has increased from 1991 to 2013. However, among the factors to be considered other than the raw numbers are: population increase, increase in vehicular miles driven, increased maintenance costs as more infrastructure is built, debt service on earlier projects, replacement costs of infrastructure as it wears out and additional demands such as strategies to protect the environment. Briefly, comparing 1991 budget numbers to a 2013 budget doesn’t give us much worthwhile information. The comparison is much more complex than that.

letters | FROM 5 bridge is not being retained. It is vulnerable to earthquake and wind loads. Finally, Mr. Ewing has confused the mean with the median. A mean sums household incomes and divides by the number of households. Wikipedia defines the median as a “numerical value separating the higher half of a sample from the lower half.” According to the City of Mercer Island website, the estimated mean family income on Mercer Island is $219,053. The estimated median family income, which I used, is $145,774. I, too, am tired of being bullied by politicians. The state Legislature began studying tolling for SR-520 in 2008. That was the time for input on policy. Yet we have a Johnny-come-lately City Council member who suddenly advocates revisiting the issue. We can debate policy forever and

in the meantime we risk our bridges falling down and our infrastructure further deteriorating. Such delaying tactics not only cost money but risk lives and the health of Puget Sound economy as the bridge ages. We are being penny wise and pound foolish when we fight tooth and nail against paying for essential infrastructure. We need to look at what’s really so, solve problems, step into action, and create a future that we are proud to leave our children. Carol Friends

Community Fund supports farmers market On behalf of the board of the Mercer Island Farmers Market, I would like to thank the MI Community Fund for their generous support of our new “Sampling and

Strengthening Program.” Throughout the 2013 season, from Sunday, June 9, through Sunday, Oct. 13 (10 a.m.-3 p.m.), farmers market patrons will be able to sample an array of delicious products sold by our vendors, including fruit, vegetables, baked goods, fish, honey, jam and prepared foods. The MI Community Fund also allows us to provide some “market bucks” to Island residents who visit the MI Food Pantry. As a result, MI residents will add healthy, new favorites to their dinner tables, and our local vendors will benefit from the growing customer base on Mercer Island. Thank you, MI Community Fund, for supporting our mission to bring healthy foods to MI residents and to keep our market strong and vibrant. Kari Fisher Chair, MIFM Board

Burglary: A home in the 8200 block of S.E. 62nd Street, a few blocks northwest of Pioneer Park, was burglarized during daylight hours between 10:30 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. Burglars entered the house through a back door to the garage that had been left open. The house did not have an alarm and the burglars stole multiple items, including unexpired 12-day Disney passes, four passports, five Social Security cards, checkbooks,

flash drives with tax information, two Dell laptops and an Apple iTouch. Bike accident: A bicyclist crashed at 4:25 p.m. in the 4300 block of East Mercer Way when she braked to avoid a collision with a vehicle that she saw was going to pull out in front of her. The bike’s brakes locked up and the bicyclist, a 26-year-old woman, was thrown over her handlebars onto the pavement. An aid unit responded and the woman was treated for her injuries at the scene.

Eight from Mercer Island participate in Boston Marathon By Megan Managan

Eight Mercer Island runners were registered for the 2013 Boston Marathon, which was the site of several explosions during the race. Reports indicate that two explosions went off near the finish line of the race, around the four-hour mark of the historic event. As of the Reporter’s press time on Monday, information was still coming in concerning the incident. According to the Boston Marathon website, there were eight people from Mercer Island registered to participate in the race. Of those eight, three had

finish times listed online before the explosion. Peter Noone finished the event in 3 hours, 33:15 minutes. Jeff Poppe was listed as finishing the event in 4:09.28, while Lisa Spencer was listed as finishing in 4:09.11. Robert Cremin, Rhonda Glass, Roger Larson, Chelese Longwith and Timothy Steege were all listed on the Boston Marathon site as registered for the event, but do not have finish times. Police reportedly stopped the race at the 25-mile mark after the explosions at the finish line. Updates on the story will be posted online at www.

woman sustained scrapes to her face and hands. One witness confirmed the victim’s account of the incident. Animal complaint: A 20-yearold woman reported that another woman’s yellow lab bit her German shepherd at 6:20 p.m. at Luther Burbank Park in the 2000 block of 84th Avenue S.E. The complainant claimed there were witnesses, but they told the police officer that they did not see the dog bite or the dogs fighting. Both dogs were off leash.

MI Girl Scouts to hold event to support school in India Girl Scout Troop 43609 is sponsoring a fundraiser through Karate West to help a school for girls in India. Scouts and their friends

an families are invited to attend a one-hour selfdefense class hosted by Sensei Andrew Knebel, from Karate West of Mercer Island. Karate West offers not only an effective selfdefense program but also a comprehensive program of personal growth and development with emphasis on teaching the life skills of leadership, integrity, goal setting, self-discipline and academic excellence. The event is to raise money to donate directly to the Kiran Anjali Project to help support the Wings School in Hyderabad India. The Wings School works to transform the lives of girls from nearby villages by providing free, high quality education and job training so that they can be role models in their communities. Their goal is to lift the girls from poverty to prosperity and empower them to take charge of their destiny. Troop 43609 selected self-defense for this event because it is part of the Wings School curriculum. Two sessions are set for April 19. All Girl Scouts, friends and family (6 years or older) are invited. For information or to register, contact Eliana Caputo, 7836 S.E. 71st St., Mercer Island, Wash., 98040, or call (425) 5338206.

Input wanted on city’s Six Year Transportation Program update Whether you bike, drive or walk to get around, it is time to weigh in on the City of Mercer Island’s plan to maintain and improve bike paths, sidewalks, trails and streets. Mercer Island and other cities in Washington state are preparing annual updates to their six-year transportation improvement program, called the “TIP.” The TIP includes roadway, pedestrian and bicycle projects planned for the six-year period beginning in 2014. The process of updating Mercer Island’s TIP includes opportunities for the public to provide input on what they would like to see in the update. The public comment period begins April 1 and runs through the end of the month.

Saturday mail service to continue for now The U.S. Postal Service announced on Wednesday, April 10, that it would be withdrawing its plan to end Saturday mail service. The Board of Governors of the U.S. Postal Service met on Tuesday, April 9, and decided to take back the plan because Congress has prohibited the change. According to a press release from the USPS: “By including restrictive language in the Continuing Resolution, Congress has prohibited implementation of a new national delivery schedule for mail and packages, which would consist of package delivery Monday through Saturday and mail delivery Monday through Friday, and which would have taken effect the week of Aug. 5, 2013.” The press release went on to say the board was disappointed with the Congressional action and has instructed the Postal Service to delay the new schedule implementation. The board also noted it hopes Congress would pass legislation allowing the USPS “to implement a financially appropriate and responsible delivery schedule.” The board said it continues to support the new delivery schedule, which would help generate upwards of $2 billion in savings for the USPS.


“To restore the Postal Service to long-term financial stability, the Postal Service requires the flexibility to reduce costs and generate new revenues to close an ever widening budgetary gap,” said the press release about the change. “It is not possible for the Postal Service to meet significant cost reduction goals without changing its delivery schedule — any rational analysis of our current financial condition and business options leads to this conclusion. Delaying responsible changes to the Postal Service business model only increases the potential that the Postal Service may become a burden to the American taxpayer, which is avoidable.” In light of the delay to the cost-saving measures, the USPS hopes to reopen negotiations with the postal unions, while also asking management to find other options to increase revenue. To learn more, visit the USPS website.

Semi-truck dumps sticky mess on I-5 An accident involving a disabled minivan and a semi-truck carrying a large quantity of resin glue left most of northbound Interstate 5 near the Highway 18 junction a sticky mess late April 10 and into early Thursday morning, April 11. According to the Washington State Patrol, a disabled minivan was in one of the center lanes of I-5 when the semi-truck struck it from behind. The accident left the 55-yearold driver of the minivan with serious injuries, and she was transported to Harborview Medical Center. The semi-truck was carrying resin glue, and one of the “pouches” of resin glue it was carrying burst open as a result of the crash. Reports estimate the amount of glue at 20,000 gallons. Efforts between the state Department of Transportation and Department of Ecology saw the resin glue cleaned up by early Thursday morning, although the work crews continued to bog down traffic during the morning commute.

Community news Fifth-grader wins again at state science fair Ellie Nomicos attended the Washington State Science Fair again this year and won first place in her category for the thirdstraight year. She also won a special award from the Pacific Science Center for her project. There were over 550 participants. Nomicos is a fifth-grader at West Mercer Elementary, in Mrs. Kirsten Bourke’s class. Nomicos, a swimmer, did a research project on measuring the effect of height on a swimmer’s speed. Nomicos analyzed the times of the swimmers from the London 2012 Olympics to determine how much height affects a swimmer’s speed in each stroke (freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and breaststroke). As she expected, height made the biggest difference in freestyle and backstroke, and a very slight difference in breaststroke. It surprised her that height did not make a significant difference for butterfly. The fair was held April 5-6 at Bremerton High School.

Destination ImagiNation teams win again Mercer Island School District had five Destination ImagiNation teams that placed in the state tournament earlier in April.

Overcooked Lasagna, a West Mercer team, took second place in elementary level improv with “Change in Realitee.” The team includes: Mollie Parkinson, Lila Shroff, Ben Roe, Jasper Geer, Sophia Ristuben, Sophia Chen and Lauren Hunter. Spicy Sombreros, a West Mercer team, took first place in the elementary level structural engineering competition with “Twist-ORama.” The team includes: Justin Skene, Bridger Bourke, Ichi Nakata, Akhil Pothenini, Ryan Shobe, Julian Sanders and Kevin

Li. The Spicy Sombreros also earned a Spirit of DI award for displaying exceptional DI spirit during their Instant Challenge. Los Tacos Hermanos, an IMS team, took first place in the middle level improv competition with “Change in Realitee.” The team includes: Ben Stoops, Cole Nielsen, Verli Chen and Bryan Zhao. The Mercer Island High School team, The Illusions, took first place in the second level structural engineering competition in “Twist-ORama.” The team includes: Trevor Gullstad, Jay Rosenstein, Jason McRuer, Aidan Wang, Grace Hunter and Josh Park. The Illusions also earned a Da Vinci award for outstanding creativity. All teams were coached by Mark Headlee. All first and second place teams will travel to Knoxville, Tenn., in late May to compete in the Global Finals Tournament. There will be about 1,000 teams in attendance representing the top five percent of the most creative students in the world.

Students receive honors from AAUW Young women from the Bellevue and Mercer Island School Districts were honored at a reception by the Lake Washington Branch of the American Association of University Women as part of AAUW Scholars program on April 17. Each was chosen by her school for outstanding scholarship in math, science or technology. Mary Wingerson received an award for mathematics and Rachel Van Gelder was awarded for science. The Amer ican Association of University Women is a national organization that promotes education and equity for all women and girls. It is open to women with degrees and certificates from regionally accredited institutions as well as students enrolled in bachelor or associates degree programs.

State superintendent likes House schools budget Washington state Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn

praised the state House of Representatives budget for schools in the coming biennium. In a statement released last week, he said, “The state House budget proposal, released yesterday, puts us on the path to fully funding basic education by 2018. It aligns with the initial stages of education reform as outlined in Substitute House Bill 2776 and the work of the Quality Education Council, which I used as the basis for my budget request.” The proposal includes $225.4 million for K-3 class-size reduction. Next, materials, supplies and operating costs total $461.3 million. Pupil transportation would be funded at 100 percent, $144.1 million, by the 2014-15 school year. Full-day kindergarten ($91.5 million): The number of state-funded full-day kindergarten classrooms would be increased from the current 22 percent to 38 percent in 2013-14, and 53 percent in 2014-15. The work continues to get Washington state to 100 percent by 2017-18. Administrative and classified employee salaries were included at $247.9 million. “Districts would no longer need to rely on funding from unstable sources like local levies to pay non-certificated employees,” Dorn said. The proposal also funds additional basic education requirements of McCleary, such as support for students to get them career and college ready by graduation at a cost of $75.0 million and an increase of instructional hours to allow students the opportunity to earn more credits between seventh and 12th grade at $63.5 million.

Budget negotiations to continue this week to find money for schools According to the Daily Olympian, closed-door negotiations will take place between House and Senate leaders to reconcile the two chambers’ budget proposals, which vary greatly in their reliance on tax increases and in how they approach cuts to social services. The Senate’s budget proposes no new taxes, while the House would levy taxes on bottled water, extend the

Wednesday, April 17, 2013 | Page 9

state’s beer tax and eliminate 15 tax breaks for businesses. That revenue would go toward K-12 education, which the state Supreme Court has ordered the Legislature to fully fund by 2018. The Senate proposes deeper cuts to social services to free up more money for education.

side of the mountains. In Woodinville, there are tasting rooms of wines produced in Eastern Washington. There are also wineries where the grapes are brought in from Eastern Washington, and the winemaking actually takes place in Woodinville. I was in Woodinville on a Saturday. It was not a specifically important Saturday, except that the weather was wonderful. The traffic was fierce; the parking was scarce. Betz Family Winery did have its pick-up of ordered wine. Traffic into Betz was directed by police. I commented that I would not like to be a Woodinville resident who had to do my chores on the weekend. Whenever we visit Napa and Sonoma, we rarely visit more than five wineries per day. We usually plan to stop for lunch, but it never happens. We always end up having an early dinner. You can’t do a winery justice if you blitz in and out. You don’t savor the wine or listen to their history. However, the California wineries are closer together. In Washington, they are not only spread out but sometimes hard to find. Woodinville is a half hour, 20-mile drive from Mercer Island. Plan on visiting Woodinville more than once. As you understand the layout, Woodinville wine touring will become easier.

The Baer Winery has a tasting room in the Woodinville warehouse wine district on 144th Avenue N.E. and has tastings on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. are coming to visit. Aunt Minnie’s favorite wine is white, but she can’t remember the brand or varietal, but it has a grape on the label. This is also for people who have never visited wineries. Chateau Ste. Michelle is the most polished with a very informational wine tour. The surrounding gardens and landscaping are breathtaking. Then, drive across the street to Columbia and then visit Januik/Novelty Hill, which is right behind Columbia. Finish off with a late lunch/early dinner at Red Hook Brewery, which is just east of Columbia. All these three have food available. Columbia serves flatbread pizzas on Wednesday through Sunday. Novelty Hill offers a seasonal menu on the weekends. Chateau Ste. Michelle has a wonderful gift shop where

salami, cheese and crackers can be purchased. Food is important while wine tasting. Our daughter brought bottles of water and a selection of crackers in the car truck.

The tourist district Woodinville sponsors a First Thursday Wine Walk in the Hollywood District. While it might be crowded, participants are assured that the wineries are open on the first Thursday of the month from 4 to 8 p.m. $20 per person buys 15 tasting tickets. Bring your own glass; cash only.

The warehouse district In a couple of industrial parks just north of the tourist area is the hottest spot for wine tasting in Woodinville. On the third Thursday, the

Warehouse District is featured from 4 to 8 p.m. $20 per person buys 15 tasting tickets. Bring your own glass; cash only. Food trucks are available. There are more than 43 small wineries and/or tasting rooms within easy walking distance of each other. One cluster is located just off of 144th Avenue Northeast, and a smaller cluster is off of 142nd Avenue Northeast. If you visit the wineries at other times, there is usually a tasting fee that is often refunded if wine is purchased. Make sure to visit William Church Winery, which is owned by Leslie Lind Balsley and her husband, Rod. Leslie grew up on Mercer Island and graduated from Mercer Island High School. They have a tasting room in both the warehouse district and also the tourist district.

Islanders defeat Bellevue during tribute game

Mercer Island fastpitch splits week By Megan Managan

By Megan Managan

The Mercer Island boys soccer team easily defeated Bellevue on Tuesday, April 9, in a special tribute game for former head coach Steve Newman. The final score was 5-1. With the win, the Islanders moved into sole possession of the No. 2 position in the KingCo conference with a 4-0-3 league record and 5-1-3 overall. “So far the season has been going pretty well. We had a couple ties that should have been wins, but overall we have been playing quality soccer and the players are focusing on each game at a time,” said head coach Colin Rigby. “We look forward to the second half of the season and expect to continue to grow as a team and continue to succeed.” Mercer Island got off to a quick start in the game against Bellevue, scoring all five goals in the first half of the game. Blake Wright was the first to score, in the fourth minute of the game. His second goal

In the 26th minute, Islander Sean Nevin scored off a long kick that zoomed straight to the back corner of the goal, lifting the team to a 5-0 score. Bellevue made its only goal of the night with a Bennett Bugbee penalty kick in the second half. At halftime the Islanders honored former head coach Steve Newman, who died in

As the Islanders head into the second half of the KingCo season, Rigby said the team continues to be committed to the end goal: state. “These players want to get back to that state championship, and if they keep their bodies and minds focused, I think we could do it,” he said. “KingCo is a very

strong league, and it is very important to have success throughout the season. You can’t afford slip-ups in this competition. We have had some players step up, and we need to build on that.” The Islanders played at Sammamish on Tuesday, after Reporter deadline. The team will travel to Interlake on Friday, April 19, for a KingCo game beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Team Stars & Stripes to a big win during the Global Bowl Torino in Italy last week.

Mercer Island 1st Quarter Market Snap Shot Listing Inventory on Mercer Island has been hovering at a ten year low for 5 quarters and mirrors the Puget Sound market. After rising for 4 quarters the average list price has evened out while the average median price has risen for the 5th consecutive quarter. The asking prices of pending properties continue to increase. Below the 1 million dollar price level, demand on Mercer Island completely outstrips supply, while between 1 and 2 million dollars supply and demand are about even. Only when you get over 2 million dollars do you see fewer buyers than listings. We now have seen 3 consecutive quarters of rising sales prices on the Island. Market time on Mercer Island in the first quarter is 20% less than last year at 75 days. The real estate recovery here is in full swing! -Statistics compiled by Principal Managing Broker E.J. Bowlds from the NWMLS statistical report issued 04/04/2013
